Being able to entertain at home has become one of the homeowner’s most desired requests. After spending much time and money on renovation, it’s easy to see why. Homeowners are proud of their homes – but also, this is often a perfect place for close ones can come together and enjoy each other’s company away from the hustle and bustle of busy malls or loud restaurants.
These six inspiring projects are perfect examples. In fact, they are so inspiring that they are all now in the running to win the title of Best Space for Retreat at Lookbox Design Awards 2017.

#1 The Duchess
Hall Interiors has dramatically reconfigured this 2-bedroom condominium unit. Effective space planning improves the natural lighting conditions and promotes social interaction in this home belonging to a bachelor who enjoys hosting guests. A highlight and focal point is the cantilevered kitchen island.
#2 Happiness With Colors
Apart from having a chic and vibrant look, Linear Space Concepts has designed this HDB flat to revolve around interaction. An open layout with functional and decorative built-in elements allows the small-space home to be comfortable and social.
#3 Color Palette
The homeowners of this 3-bedroom condominium unit enjoy wine and whiskey, cooking and having immediate family and close friends over. 7 Interior Architecture has reworked the layout to optimise the apartment for entertaining. Its design also factors in child safety, providing visibility from the kitchen so the homeowners can keep an eye on the young children while doing prep work.
For a home centred around cooking and gathering, a spacious open kitchen and ample space for mingling is key. In this 3-bedroom condominium unit designed by SSplusD, the various spaces were designed to be interconnected, but zoned visually through the arrangement of furniture and material finishes.
This semi-detached house designed by Scale Studio sees a clear segregation between the public and private spaces, yet is open and welcoming. It features a design that plays up the idea of a grand arrival in the living area, befitting of the homeowners’ entertaining style and their love for hosting guests.
#6 Basement Delights
In the basement of this 4-storey detached house designed by KNQ Associates, an elegant home cinema and karaoke room doubles as a second living room for visiting guests. There is also space for the family to enjoy table tennis together, and plenty of room for holding larger family gatherings.
If these homes inspire you, you should definitely get tickets to the upcoming Lookbox Design Awards 2017 Gala Night to find out who the winner of the Best Space for Entertaining category will be, and see more stunning projects from Singapore’s top designers!
